Bandit – HOMED

  • Deerhound X
  • Can live with children, 10 plus
  • Needs an active home

We would like to introduce you to Bandit, our big hairy lurcher! Poor Bandit is in limbo at the moment, he has lived in a home with children since he was a puppy but due to health problems his owner has had to give him up. He is a deerhound cross, a big boy and 18 months old, so only a baby still. He does jump up a bit but soon settles and sits and shakes his paw like a good boy, he loves people and is fine with other dogs and walks well on the lead.

As you can imagine, leaving his home and family to come into kennels with strange dogs and people, Bandit was overwhelmed and quite sad and although he has got used to the staff and volunteers, he desperately needs to have a home of his own, so if you feel you could give this big boy his forever home, he will willingly give you his heart in return💜…
